Kent LTA Notice

Hi everyone. I trust and hope that you and your respective families are well and staying safe in these difficult times.

I received an email yesterday evening from Kent LTA, advising the Club that following their most recent meeting the non usage of all tennis courts has been extended from 31 May to 28 June. Because of this, Kent LTA has further determined that their Summer League be cancelled. The North Kent League usually mirrors the decisions of the Kent LTA so I am expecting confirmation that the North Kent Summer League will similarly be cancelled in the coming days. At the moment it remains the expectation that the Winter Leagues will be played.

Whilst the actions of the Kent LTA are totally understandable, I know the continual non playing of our great game will be of great disappointment to all of you. Assuming the North Kent Summer League is cancelled I shall be contacting you again about the issue of club fees for 2020/21, which ordinarily fall due on 1 April, once the non-playing restrictions are lifted.

Clearly it would be inappropriate to expect full payment based on the existing rates detailed on our website. I am aware that some members have already paid this year’s membership fees and they will be reimbursed in due course. A decision on the level of fees will be taken by your Committee.

Finally for those of you that have the WhatsApp facility on your mobile or tablet, around 50% of existing members are on our general club tennis group. Anyone wishing to be added to this group please contact Dave Kane.

With very best wishes
